    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Good thing series wins aren't measured in the standings.

    You've definitely got more patience than me! I only have a handful of people on my list but I don't regret putting any of them on there.

    Choo's got a beef on that one too. Both he and Frazier got rung up on questionable strikes.

    A lot of pitchers getting hit recently it seems. More than normal IMO. Glancing shot and Cozart is at 1st.

    How those are strikes, but all the ones Leake threw earlier are not, is alarmingky inconsistent

    I think that in a year or two, one of these guys - Frazier, Dorn, Valaika, Cumberland, Stubbs - will be ready to replace Dunn. They won't hit as many home runs as Dunn, but they should have similar OPS. - 757690, July 22, 2008

    I really hope that when the history of the 2013 season is written that this series as looked back on as just a hickup. We got beat.

    I agree. The Braves announcers have been talking about it all game long regarding how the ump sets up and him giving inside strikes. They're talking like it's consistent for everyone...but I'm not seeing that.

    I post that once a game thread. Once the team wins another series against a good team, it will no longer apply. That is, unless it takes another couple weeks to win another series against a good team.

    This boards game thread is very odd. I am a member of a good many professional sports teams message boards, and every game thread is filled with people posting stuff just like I am. Have never run into an issue until now. Some people are more negative and some people are more positive. Just the nature of fans.
